De Bruyne could miss up to 10 weeks because of knee and ankle injuries suffered Wednesday against Everton in the Capital One Cup.

It was initially believed that De Bruyne would miss up to six weeks, but additional scans confirmed the seriousness of the ailment, which could force him to miss up to 15 matches in all competitions, depending on whether City advance in the FA Cup and Champions League. The loss of De Bruyne will be a massive one for City as they try to maintain pace with Leicester and Arsenal in the Premier League title race, while their Champions League aspirations obviously take a huge hit as well. Jesus Navas is likely to move into the starting XI in De Bruyne's absence, with Kelechi Iheanacho also a possibility.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne will be sidelined for at least six weeks after suffering knee and ankle ligament damage during Wendesday's Capital One Cup match against Everton on Wednesday, according to Stuart Brennan of the Manchester Evening News.

De Bruyne's absence will be a massive one for City, and while they have plenty of depth in the midfield, none of it is on De Bruyne's level, both in scoring goals and setting them up. Jesus Navas is likely to move into the starting XI while De Bruyne is out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne scored a goal and tallied an assist as a substitute, but was stretchered off the pitch with a serious-looking leg injury in Wednesday's 3-1 victory over Everton.

De Bruyne was simply sensational after coming on in the 66th minute, needing just five minutes to score his fifth goal in five Capital One Cup matches. Six minutes later, he put an inch-perfect cross to the head of Sergio Aguero to give Man City the aggregate victory. However, despite advancing to Wembley for the Cup final, if De Bruyne's injury is as serious as it looked, which required an air cast and a stretcher, the victory on Wednesday could be seen as a pyrrhic one.

De Bruyne tallied an assist in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

In an easy win from tape-to-tape, De Bruyne picked up his first assist in five matches (since Dec. 26). He has been nothing short of elite in all competitions, tallying 12 goals and 14 assists across 33 matches including eight assists in 18 Premier League matches. He'll be a great play week-in and week-out across all formats thanks to his ability to pump in crosses and supply excellent through balls no matter the opponent.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne sent in an incredible 20 crosses and picked up a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw to Everton on Wednesday.

De Bruyne has been one of the best young players in the EPL this season and a game like this shows his versatility. He now has five goals and eight assists in just 17 games and remains an elite fantasy option going forward.

De Bruyne was dangerous in Tuesday's goalless draw with Leicester, attempting two shots, making three key passes and putting in a whopping 16 crosses.

Coming off a stellar performance versus Sunderland, the Belgian nearly broke the match open on a number of occasions, repeatedly putting crosses on a platter for the other City attackers to spoil. De Bruyne has been an impact performer nearly every time out since being acquired this summer, and he continues as such despite the struggles of some of his teammates. He is an elite fantasy play regardless of the matchup, and should continue as such versus Watford this weekend.

De Bruyne scored one and had a hand in two more, not to mention that he created six chances as he delivered another masterclass in Manchester City’s 4-1 demolition of Sunderland on Boxing Day

The greatest testament to the impact the Belgian has made since signing from Wolfsburg is that David Silva, the Citizen’s creative lynchpin since joining in 2010 from Valencia, has not been missed. Sunderland were poor but we shouldn’t take anything away from De Bruyne’s performance. He was magnificent and from a Fantasy perspective if you already own him, cherish him, if not beg, lie or steal to get him. A top class fantasy performer.

De Bruyne is available off the bench Saturday against Swansea City.

De Bruyne is likely just being rested after a long run of big matches, and he'll be replaced on the right wing by Jesus Navas.
